you're going to need some help and you want somebody to help you find a way? >> as you point out, washington is a complicated place. it is a place that unfortunately has been broken a long time. i'll tell you what i have been doing the past several months of the campaign is seeking advice from those who have been up there, seeking advice from senator john cornyn, seeking advice from senator kay bailey hutchison, seeking advice from former senator phil gramm, all of whom have given me their insights on how to be effective, how to defend texas. >> is there something you want to learn more about or maybe you think your knowledge base is not where you want it to be? >> i'm drawing on their experience and show them -- i haven't served in the u.s. senate, neither has mr. sadler, i welcome and rely on their experience about the institution, about the individual people in that institution and my intention if and when i'm elected in november is to put my nose down, roll my sleeves up and do the hard work it's going to take to fix these problems. >> mr. sadler, how would you get up to speed and is there a policy area you think you would have to lean on your colleagues? >> foreign policy. we're not privy to the security briefings that senators get.

we don't have those things. i've been very measured in my criticisms of -- i've never been critical of mr. obama or mr. romney on foreign policy because i think it's important that you know what you're talking about. as a united states senator you need to know when to deep your mouth shut and right now that's the time. everythingrivy to they know. that's an area where i would look forward to having briefings and having the opportunity to learn more about. >> thank you very much, thanks to you for -- thanks to you the candidates for joining us and my colleagues for being here as well for this texas debate. we'll make this program available on election day is tuesday, november 6. good night. \[captioning performed by national captioning institute] \[captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> the enemy understands this will be a major defeat in their ideology of hatred. that is why they're fighting. that is why they're fighting.
